Just fyi, I just downloaded this torrent(romeoandjuliet) using Miro, which uses Libtorrent, in about 12 minutes. I also downloaded a large YMSB torrent very quickly. I don't quite understand the concept of using bittorrent without being able to upload back though.

I am sorry, I dont understand. If you download something with bittorrent and others want the same item's torrent, you will upload to them. I this what you are referring to?

Maybe I didn't understand. I thought I had read that it was one way. And my bittorrent client said there were others downloading but nothing was uploaded to them. But my main point was how fast it worked.
